My experience living in the Prospect Hill neighbor hood on San Antonio has grounded my existence. Coexisting with the people of my side has led me to the conclusion that not everything is granted in this life, and if i want to make something of myself, I'm going to have to work really hard for it, there aren't freebie for people like us. This neighborhood opens your eyes to the realities of poverty, to half paved roads to streets with 4 houses because the others were torn down or condemned. Even though coming from this tough neighborhood can be a downer on life expectations, it has become a life motivator for my path. I do not plan on living on these streets for the rest of my life and i know I can make it out, like so many before me.

Although my neighbors are highly trustable, the people who roam the streets are not. Around my neighborhood i feel unsafe to walk around certain areas, even during the day, when the sun shining bright and everything is visible. Cops are patrolling the constantly, but even at that, burglaries around the community are extremely common.
It can be unsafe at times. You ALWAYS need someone to walk or ride bikes with you, especially if you're a girl. There is lots of homeless people near the gas stations by the busy streets. People also tend to rob whenever they can if they see something they can sell off but mostly steal bikes so its wise to always keep things chained up or locked inside. However there are some friendly neighbors who always watch out for one another so if something happens there always willing to help. I honestly wouldn't choose to live here again if it was up to me, I just don't feel safe at times. I hope in the future they fix up the streets a little better and put some speed bumps in the area because they always tend to to go fast on both the big streets and little streets as well. This area of town needs help in all areas.
